The Pittsburgh Penguins found a way to win a tough post-Christmas road game in New Jersey on Friday night as Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 37-shots to post his first shutout of the season. Ruslan Fedotenko got the lone Penguins’ goal on a feed by Evgeni Malkin. The goal was Fedotenko’s 9th of the season, while Malkin picked up his league leading 44th-assist and 59th point. Malkin has established an 11-point lead in assists and 12-point lead in points and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The Penguins will be back in Pittsburgh tonight as they host the Montreal Canadiens at Mellon Arena. Last night’s win put the Penguins a point ahead of New Jersey, while a regulation win tonight would put the Penguins 2-points ahead of Montreal. The Penguins will be looking to build momentum for home-and-home games against the Eastern Conference leading Boston Bruins on Tuesday and Thursday.
